A warning to the wise


Stephen Leather, bestselling thriller author, has outed himself as a user of highly underhand and dishonest techniques in promoting his books on Amazon. Novelist and journalist Jeremy Duns hasn’t let him get away with it. I urge you to read Jeremy’s devastating point-by-point case against him here.

I’m not mentioning this because of envy of Leather’s sales figures, or schadenfreude. Leather and his practices are dirtying the reputation of authors, especially self-published authors like me.

Please avoid Leather’s work and spread the word.

    Tim, your link to the story gets diverted to a promo page. I doubt it is intentional! The clean link to the story you refer to is as follows; http://murderiseverywhere.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/rogue-author.html
